I have long lamented that Datsun 240Z prices have skyrocketed so much in recent years. But I remain optimistic because it seems like most owners of those cars are committed to keeping them nice, or at least doing something truly interesting with them. One of those owners is Tyler Powell, who’s done a monster…
The mid-engine Corvette has been an enigma. We know it’ll be fast. We know the engine is behind the driver. That’s really about it. We don’t even really think it’ll be called a “Corvette.” But thanks to new video from the Nurburgring, we know exactly what it sounds like. And that it’ll have an automatic transmission.
What’s this? Our mid-engine Corvette bonanza continues, this time with spy video from the Nürburgring? This button works so we’re gonna keep hitting it, folks.
Are you sick of the mid-engine Corvette yet? Trick question, of course you aren’t. You desperately want to see it for real, desire to have it in your hermetically sealed garage, dream of hearing its American V8 howl behind your head for you and you alone. That day is not today! But until it is, enjoy more spy shots.
What’s this? Even more photos of the mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette hanging around the Nürburgring? It’s truly a Labor Day miracle.
It may be Labor Day in the U.S., but the Corvette team is skipping the holiday to test a certain prototype at the world’s most intense race track. Here’s the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette arriving at a testing center near the Nürburging, and with less camouflage than we’ve seen previously.
Perhaps realizing few will pay attention to or talk about it after the expected coming of its successor, the ancient mythological beast known as the mid-engine Corvette, this current-generation Corvette Z06 evidently wanted to get some attention by fighting a wall at the Nürburgring in Germany. It lost.
I remember the first car I drove with more than 700 horsepower. It was Tony Angelo’s Formula Drift car and it was terrifying. It was exhilarating. It changed my whole idea of how cars can work. I drove it off the track in a matter of minutes.
The Whelen Engineering Action Express Racing Chevrolet Corvette Coyote Daytona Prototype was racing, and winning, in IMSA’s top tier Prototype class just two years ago. In fact, it took drivers Dane Cameron and Eric Curran to the series driver’s championship in 2016.
We’ve been hearing rumors about a mid-engine Corvette for a couple of years, and while GM is keeping it very under wraps, it turns out you can learn a hell of a lot from stuff floating out on the open internet. Including that everyone’s talking about two different cars entirely.
Renting a car can be glamorous or a total cluster, depending on whether you want it more for the experience or as a means to get somewhere for the lowest price. This new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 rental at Hertz leans toward the former, but don’t expect to get far—it has a cap at 75 miles per day before fees rack up.
Another day, another mid-engine Corvette sighting. Except this isn’t some blocky mule running around a gas station with a tarp on its face, this appears to be the new Corvette C8.R race car.
There’s still no official word from GM regarding the “mid-engine Corvette” but images and audio of the camouflaged race car running around today yield some, uh, interesting aural hints as to what powers the thing.
If you’re a Chevrolet Corvette with an overwhelming desire to shut the Dodge Demon people up for good, New Jersey-based GM tuner Specialty Vehicle Engineering has the answer to your troubles with a famed name from Chevy’s tuner past. The company is now selling bored, stroked, and supercharged 1,000 horsepower Corvette…
A 2019 Chevy Corvette Grand Sport has been reduced to shiny pile of disappointment, before its odometer even broke out of the teens. Forget “not broken in,” this poor thing barely broke out of the dealership parking lot.
General Motors is recalling its 750-horsepower road-going monster at the top of the Corvette line, the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, for risk of airbags not deploying in the event of hard braking and acceleration. The recall includes about 500 cars, and GM engineers discovered the issue at a track day.
Do you often wish you could watch your own car driving around from the outside, but just don’t trust any of your friends to drive it? I can’t say that’s exactly why Bjorn Harms of Urmond, Netherlands modified his C6 Corvette to be remote controlled, but he did, and it’s pretty amazing.
The 755-horsepower 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is great for the dyno. It has a monstrous factory power rating, but losses in the drivetrain mean that number isn’t what ultimately goes to the wheels. The dyno helps find out how big that power loss is, but it can also make a person lose control of their limb.
Even some employees at a Georgia dealership were surprised at one of its recent used-car listings: a 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, priced at an incredible $499,900. The list price hilariously sits above the Kelley Blue Book estimate for a factory Grand Sport on Autotrader, which is in the mid-$60,000 range.
